(1) And he said, "Whoever finds the interpretation of these sayings will not experience death."
Being saved, by my perspective, is the gift of being born again. I view this as God granting us furtherance of life in a new body, either here on
this planet of the fallen, or elsewhere in the kingdom of God (universe/heavens). We are currently souls living in a bio-mechanical suit to learn.
Christians believe in life here and in a new body later. I see it as many more. "You must be born again" is not an option.
(2) Jesus said, "Let him who seeks continue seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will become troubled. When he becomes troubled, he will be
astonished, and he will rule over the All."
Seeing truth makes us confront our own pride. Even a theologian can have this pride, putting his faith in what he thinks he understands. Perceived
contradictions are disturbing. When we see as a child, with no prideful blinders on, we can see the truth within and not by the astigmatism caused by
the world's pride. Once we see clearly, we are astonished.
(3) Jesus said, "If those who lead you say to you, 'See, the kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you,
'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves,
then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell
in poverty and it is you who are that poverty."
The kingdom is you. It is us. It is out there in the universe. Your body is a kingdom you rule now, a living universe. When you see yourself as a
reflection of God's kingdom, you see that we are all one in God and He in us. We are in His image through Him. We come out by being in Christ. Our
essence (information) is saved and transported with Christ. If you separate yourself from the rule of love, you dwell in poverty by clinging to your
selfish pride; by holding on to what you can take instead of what you can give to those who are also on the journey. The kingdom can be yours, or you
can live here in poverty with the tiny substance you take. This becomes your reward. A kingdom divided against itself falls. Where are you now and
why? Earth is a kingdom of those who are divided against God. The planet of refinement. The key out is love by defeating the adversary instead of
(4) Jesus said, "The man old in days will not hesitate to ask a small child seven days old about the place of life, and he will live. For many who are
first will become last, and they will become one and the same."
If you have been working in the vineyard over many lifetimes or just a few, we all get paid a wage equally as we find our way home. Place yourself
first in pride and you will leave last. Place yourself last in humility and love for God and others and go home first.
20: 1 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went
out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. 2 He agreed to pay them a denarius[a] for the day and sent them into his vineyard.......16
“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
Read it all. The workers are you in each life.
(5) Jesus said, "Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will
not become manifest."
Seek, and you will find. Knock and the door opens. Test all things, but know what is worth holding. Truth is found by trials and by seeing in
humility and not by pride in knowing, but by doing. Actions are glasses for the mind. Confucius: "I hear and I forget. I see and I understand. I
do and I know."
(6) His disciples questioned him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How shall we pray? Shall we give alms? What diet shall we observe?"
Jesus said, "Do not tell lies, and do not do what you hate, for all things are plain in the sight of heaven. For nothing hidden will not become
manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered."
All you do is recorded. Actions speak your heart to God. It will all be seen by others. Do what you know is hypocritical to truth, but know it will
be seen. The truth is written on your heart. No Bible needed. Romans 1. Psalms 33:13 From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; Psalm
44:21 For he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Jeremiah 16:17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their
iniquity hid from mine eyes.
(7) Jesus said, "Blessed is the lion which becomes man when consumed by man; and cursed is the man whom the lion consumes, and the lion becomes
The lion is the resource and bountifulness of the cosmos. Keep the resources from consuming you. It is not there to be taken, but to be respectfully
used for the benefit of all. Virtue, not vice. Giving not taking. Altruism, not objectivism.
(8) And he said, "The man is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of small fish. Among them the wise
fisherman found a fine large fish. He threw all the small fish back into the sea and chose the large fish without difficulty. Whoever has ears to
hear, let him hear."
All you will learn by seeking is a net of small fish. The prize fish is the knowledge that leads you out of the boat and back on dry land. Study to
show yourself approved. The waters of life baptize you into life everlasting. The big fish is being baptized into the inner spirit of the kingdom.
You will be born again, either back into the water or into the inheritance of the universe through the spirit. Flesh and blood do not inherit the
kingdom. This earth will pass into fire. Where will you be left if you refuse the message of escape?
(9) Jesus said, "Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up.
Others fell on the rock, did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate
them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure."
Some souls will not listen. Truth seeds fail to germinate or express their essence to form. An acorn unfolds into the oak if it falls on good soil.
(10) Jesus said, "I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes."
Trials are coming to test our faith. Be sure of this by watching the signs. God speaks to us from the circumstances of life. Learn to listen by
showing mastery over the fire.
(11) Jesus said, "This heaven will pass away, and the one above it will pass away. The dead are not alive, and the living will not die. In the days
when you consumed what is dead, you made it what is alive. When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you
became two. But when you become two, what will you do?"
Heavens and earths pass away. The cycles of creation turn. This place is not your home. What will you do when it is all consumed? Some will enter
the light with Christ, in His arms. Some will be on there own by choice.
Now that you know how to read with eyes to see, get the rest on your own through the eyes of Christ. He came to take you home.
Home will be unimaginable to your current ability to conceive. Love God and love others. The ticket is free to those who know the price. Know the
truth and it will set you free.
Future bliss can neither be imagined, explained, or described. We know nothing of its nature, form, greatness, or beauty, its quantity or quality.
This much one should know, the phrase עולם הבא, 'the world to come' does not imply that it is a world yet to be called into existence; it
exists already, but the phrase is employed to describe the life into which those who are in the present stage of existence will be transposed when
they throw off this mortal coil.--Tanchum. Vayikra.
